NEBRASKALand magazine has an interesting take on "Why I Hunt".
Quoting from the article,
But in truth, that’s not why I hunt. The sole reason is simply that someone asked me to go. Actually I blame it on three different people who asked me, and another who taught me to shoot and let me borrow his shotguns until I had my own. You see, my dad, Dave, doesn’t hunt. I don’t fault him for that – he wasn’t exposed to it as a youth growing up in Indianapolis, and it didn’t stick with him after a few trips in Nebraska.
Because someone asked him to go!
There are lots of kids across the country
